Left Hand Mutes, Palm Mutes, a New Hot Sauce Game, and the Unicorn Ukulele

The Unicorn Uke has landed, but before Aldrine shows it off, the guys answer a question about splitting practice between guitar and ukulele. They cover a couple of student reviews that both deal with muting, and Aldrine comes up with a new game for the Live Lesson viewers. The podcast is concluded with the winner of the Songwritting Challenge being announced.
